in the fbi. almost 150 people were now working to find quinn gray. the agent in charge of the fbi's jacksonville office is james casey. he says the kidnappers appeared to be deactivating quinn's cell phone after each of the calls they made to reid. >> somebody in the scheme was smart enough to take the battery out of the cell phone because we were able to do some technical capabilities to determine that that phone was not only off, but had no power to it at certain times. >> meaning you can't trace it. >> meaning you can't trace it. >> while there was no pinpointing an exact address where quinn's calls were originating, technicians were tracing pings when the phone was used. those are the electronic connections when the phone hits a particular cell tower and that gives them a general idea where quinn might have been held. >> fbi agent toni cavit was selected as the lead crisis negotiator for the bureau. >> we've got some leads. >> agents felt they were making progress and suddenly the phone was also pinging farther away. the kidnappers and quinn might have been on the move. sherif
of different reasons but because of his labor politics but also because he had called the fbi in to investigate a lynching that it happened in south carolina in 1947, and that was not a popular thing to do, to called in the fbi to investigate a lynching. but that's all in the book. it's a fascinating moment in his career. that's when a lot of things are really moving around. both in history and in southern politics. yes? >> over the years, i have read that haley barbour in his role as party chair was -- [inaudible] but i notice his name is not listed in the index. >> haley barbour certainly has played a huge role in modern republican politics, enormously talented guy who started off in mississippi politics and rose to great prominence, to be party chairman in 96. at there have been a lot. he was an important figure in kind, important southerner in building the modern gop. as you know, there have been important south killings, too. lee atwater. atwater is a guy who comes out of thurmond's political shop, yeah, that really has a huge influence on gop politics in the 1980s. runs george bush's camp
. the fbi, the justice department and others who studied it said it made no difference. so if we're looking at things that are effective, let's talk about them. but first, let's talk about protecting our kids. >> reporter: the full court press from the nra comes as some democrats, who have long supported the nra, are showing an openness to change. democratic senator mark warner of virginia who has an "a" rating from the nra, suggested that the gun lobbying group is out of touch. >> to me simply saying existing gun laws are enough the status quo is acceptable just didn't pass my gut check as a father. >> reporter: most republican lawmakers, though, remain wary of any new gun l krocontrol measures such as an assault weapons ban. >> people where i live i've been christmas shopping all weekend, have come up to me and said please don't let them take my guns away. >> reporter: retiring senator kay bailey hutchinson are one of a few from her party saying they ought to look at gun control measures. >> i think we ought to be looking at where the real danger is like those large cl
persons of interest. people who didn't look like students. every night i had to report to the fbi for anyone that might have come into oxford and checked into a hotel that didn't look like he belonged there. so i kept those notes, and then i looked at them over the years. i started this book ten years ago. and i started talking to people that were in my unit, and they provided me with anecdotes. and i looked over old newspaper sections, i looked over old magazines. started piecing things together. ken burns said you look at a photograph long enough, the photograph comes to life. the person that has a life before that snapshot and has a life after that, and you begin to, again, put things together. so you take a photograph of some of your buddies that were at the camp down there, and you start looking at it. then you make visits to the campus, and you start trying to retrace your steps. so that's what became of it, and i connected all the dots. and i had a lot of support. some of you are in the room here to keep pushing this thing. if i don't -- i will sign books after this event.
, the department of justice could do more, the fbi could do more, than just stand back and take pictures. we thought they could prevent some of the violence and protect people that were being arrested, being beaten and being killed. amy goodman: i'd like to play danny glover reading the excerpts of the speech that you didn't give. danny glover: "to those who have said, 'be patient and wait,' we must say that 'patience' is a dirty and nasty word. we cannot be patient. we do not want to be free gradually. we want our freedom, and we want it now. we cannot depend on any political party, for both the democrats and the republicans have betrayed the basic principles of the declaration of independence. ... "we won't stop now. all of the forces of eastland, barnett, wallace and thurmond won't stop the revolution. the time will come when we will not confine our marching to washington. we will march through the south, through the heart of dixie, the way sherman did. we shall pursue our own 'scorched earth' policy and burn jim crow to the ground!" amy goodman: john lewis, you also said a part that didn
the fbi agents cut that are protecting our borders and our nation from a challenge. people will be cut out on programs that support the poorest americans get access to healthy food and a strong strength for their children and this is what bothers me right now. there is a way forward through this. >> there is a way forward and, peggy, i want to bring it back to you. it does seem if you look at the constellation of forces in washington, the only way that something is actually going to get to the president's desk is if house speaker john boehner agrees to let there be a vote on something that will get democratic votes and republican votes and probably shear off his most conservative members. >> that may be true. that may be where this whole thing ends, but i think it still has to be made, this point, that everybody, republicans included on capitol hill, they all know there's going to be a tax increase. they know it. >> done. >> this is coming. even if it doesn't come in sequester, it's going to come in a deal, so they all know that, but for two reasons, one for the seriousness of it, a $16 tr
agents wouldn't know whether or not f.b.i. was allowed to track them down. but american laws and the american constitution shouldn't be public, only when government officials think it's convenient. it ought to be public all the time. americans ought to be able to find out what their government thinks those laws mean, and i think it is possible to do that while still ensuring that sensitive information -- information about sources and methods and the operations of the intelligence community are appropriately kept secret. my own view is the executive branch of the united states has so far failed to live up to their promises of greater transparency in this area, greater commitment to ensuring that the public sees how our laws are being interpreted. and as long as there is a gap, mr. president, between the way the government interprets these laws and what the public law says when we're sitting at home and looking it up on your latop, i am going to do everything i can to reduce that gap and to ensure that our citizens, consistent with our national security, have additional informa
would like people to recognize that. especially right now because i would like the fbi to really investigate who these people talk to and who are they approached by and how the day end up looking insane? host: thanks for the call and the comment from "the new york post." - above that is the quote from swine lapierre - "the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun." this is from twitter -- we are asking you about the debate ahead over gun control. wayne lapierre spoke to reporters friday which was billed as a news conference but he took no questions. he took aim at the media -- [video clip] >> how many more copycats are waiting in the wings for their moment of fame? from a national media machine that rewards them with wall-to- wall attention and a sense of identity that they crave while provoking others to try to make their mark. a dozen more killers? 100 more? how can we possibly even guess how many given our nation's refusal to create an active national database of the mentally ill. the fact is this -- that would not begin to address the much larger an
weapons ban for ten years. we had what senator feinstein is suggesting. it was allowed to expire. the fbi, the justice department and others said it made no distance. >> if it's crazy to call for putting police and armed security in our school to protect our children, then call me crazy. >> while thought of having an armed guard in every school may sound foreign, it's actually normal in some countries. one place is israel which has strict gun laws. sarah schneider joins us from jerusalem. talk about what this is about here. israel is not necessarily arming the teacher, but there is an armed guard or guards in these schools. how does it work? >> reporter: generally the armed guards are outside of schools trying to protect the schools, trying to make sure no one gets in and out that shouldn't be in the schools or may pose a danger. we should talk about some of the misinformation, because i know there was a u.s. lawmaker that said that israel arms its teachers, and that simply is not true. in fact, the gun laws here are much stricter than the united states. we need to keep in mind that here
stories to the ground below. >> really? >> they are still doing that the fbi now focusing on capturing the other inmate. that's kenneth conley. both conley and banks were convicted bank robbers but in separate cases. well, clayton, listen up. two sexy at the office? you better windchill out. your job could be at risk. >> you have a membership card? >> sir, i work here. >> really? >> what's going on? >> this lady doesn't have a membership card. >> i will take it from here, bro. >> i will take it from here, bro. iowa supreme court unanimously ruling that bosses can legally fire any employee they sees a an irresistible attraction. this comes after a dentist fired his assistant because he felt she was too attractive and threatened his fidelity to his wife. that's not possible. this is not possible. >> got your pink slip. you are out. too irresistible. >> guilty as charged. thank you. >> all right. up next, a christmas wish granted for that u.s. marine jailed in mexico. he is now back on u.s. soil. reunited with his family. one of the lawmakers who led the charge to set him free joins us ne
food on the table for their families and agencies in charge of keeping america safe like the f.b.i., border patrol, department of defense and others will be short staffed. and families may lose farms and ranches they have been passed down for generations because of the estate tax hike. these aren't wealthy aristocrats. they're honest, hard-working people who get dirt under their nails every day to put food on their tables. they all want in return, all they want is to pass the land they work on, on to their kids and on to their grandkids. these are not just numbers on a page. these are people. and we work for them. they're our employers. montana families sit down together at their kitchen tables every month and make tough choices to make ends meet. they deserve a congress that can do the same. unfortunately, the list of last-minute legislation doesn't stop with the fiscal cliff. our rural economy will take a big hit if the house fails to pass a farm bill. make no mistake, the farm bill is a jobs bill. agriculture supports 16 million jobs nationwide, in montana one in five jobs is ti
